In our September issue, get to know the Most Influential People in Security of 2018, Making sense of bug bounty programs, Kidnap & ransom basics for security professionals, how to cyber-secure your surveillance system and much more!
Security magazine is pleased to announce our 2018 Most Influential People in Security – 17 top security executives and industry leaders who are positively impacting the security field, their organization, their colleagues and peers, and the national and global security landscape.
The security operations center is the central nervous system of a security department. From that one room, enterprise security leaders can monitor worldwide risks, address ongoing incidents, track system health and sustain operations across the business.
Researchers from the U.K.-based penetration testing service Pen Test Partners recently attacked a video surveillance system, and they pulled off a fairly scary feat. “We successfully switched video feeds from one camera to another through the cloud service, proving arbitrary access to anyone’s camera,” they wrote.
Don’t know what a penetration tester is? You’re not alone; more than 50 percent of U.S. adults surveyed by the University of Phoenix have never heard of pen testers or “White Hat” ethical hackers, among other cybersecurity job titles, and only about one in 10 survey respondents is “very familiar” with the 11 jobs in the industry queried in the survey.
Almost one in 10 U.S. security professionals admits to having considered participating in Black Hat – or cybercriminal – activity, according to the report White Hat, Black Hat and the Emergence of the Grey Hat: The True Costs of Cybercrime, conducted by Osterman Research and sponsored by Malwarebytes.
At its National Cybersecurity Summit in late July, the Department of Homeland Security unveiled its new National Risk Management Center, which will coordinate national efforts to protect U.S. critical infrastructure.
This month, Security magazine highlights the importance of establishing the right metrics for your security program. Also, we highlight Eric Clay, Director of Public Safety for CoxHealth, and discuss how to build a successful K-9 Program and rethink "red flags" to prevent insider threat attacks. Industry leaders discuss this year's Presidential Election security and 2020 predictions for the security industry.
